Looking For My Corner

My grandmother loaned my mom, who loaned to me, "The Secret Life of Bees". I'm only half way through, but really enjoying it. This week I felt like I was looking for my corner:

The first week... was a consolation, a pure relief. The world will give you that once in a while, a brief timeout; the boxing bell rings and you go to your corner, where somebody dabs mercy on your beat-up life.
